West Ham boss David Moyes cautious over ‘cash injection’ solutions

With the January transfer window approaching, clubs are obviously considering different possibilities to strengthen their ranks for the remaining part of the season. For West Ham, the challenge is to maintain the surprisingly high level they’ve reached in a very short time, but manager David Moyes warns against using cash injections to solve problems.

“The team, in truth, is a long way away from the real big boys on the pitch, but we are making a really good fist of trying to do it,” Moyes said in his press conference ahead of his team’s Premier League trip to the Etihad to face defending champions Manchester City on Sunday.

“The players have done a brilliant job in getting to that level if you think that two years ago we were talking about how we were going to avoid relegation.

“It has been a really quick turnaround and we have now got to build on it.”

Indeed, the Hammers finished 16th in the league, mere five points above the relegation zone, as recently as in 2019-20. Now, however, they are fourth, six points off Chelsea at the top, and they’ve secured the top spot in Group H of the Europa League with a game to spare.
